What makes this course interesting?

  • Learn problem solving methods that you can apply across real-world problems involving theorems, definitions, and functions represented in different ways
  • Use technology to explore, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions
  • Study topics not offered in Calculus AB or other classes including parametric, polar, and vector functions, and series



AP Calculus BC is roughly equivalent to both first and second semester college calculus courses and extends the content learned in AB to different types of equations and introduces the topic of sequences and series. This course covers topics in differential and integral calculus, including concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, and series. You will learn how to approach calculus concepts and problems when they are represented graphically, numerically, analytically, and verbally, and to make connections amongst these representations.

You will also learn how to use technology to help solve problems, experiment, interpret results, and support conclusions.
